Scholarship and University Professor's Scholarship
Shawnee State University recognizes students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement through a merit based scholarship program. The University offers two levels of academic scholarship - the President's Scholarship and the University Professor's Scholarship.
The President's Scholarship is awarded to new freshman students who have achieved a composite score of 25 or higher on the ACT* (combined SAT scores of 1130 or higher) and have a high school grade point average* of at least 3.8 (4.0 scale). The President's Scholarship is full in-state tuition (less state grants) and renewable for seven semesters provided the student meets certain SSU grade point average and academic progress requirements.
The University Professor's Scholarship, for new freshman students, is also based on the student's ACT composite score* and high school grade point average*. The amounts of this scholarship vary from $500 to $2000. The University Professor's Scholarship is also renewable, based on the SSU grade point average and academic progress. The chart below outlines this scholarship program.
For example, a student has an ACT composite of 23 and a cumulative high school grade point average of 3.62. This student would receive the University Professor's Scholarship in the amount of $1,500.
*The qualifying ACT score and grade point average must be submitted to the Office of Admission no later than February 15, 2009.
